AllMusic Review by

All the attention given to Afro-Cuban music certainly is merited. But the equally important and splendid campesina (country) tradition is grossly neglected. This is a gorgeous collection of tonadas, puntos, décimas and other forms from the Euro-Hispanic half of the continuum (though much affected by Afro-Cuban input), mostly backed by tres, guitar and percussion.
